Levin’s evocation of 1959 rang a bell: It was the year we moved from a rented, unintegrated Levittown to an experiment in an integrated community in Northeast Philly: Morris Milgram’s Greenbelt Knoll. Never did my three children fear their own streets, most of their friends being black.
As my family now sells this house 50 years later, we salute the idealist who conceived the experiment. It worked, beautifully, Morris. Thanks.
We need more Milgrams to show the way.
